Foxes (1980)

A coming of age drama centred around four city girls, average age 15-16 going on 30, who have yet to shake off the kind of failings that define teens who want to be treated as equals in the adult world.
As best friends they see themselves more like a family, sharing their ups and downs and taking responsibility for each other (if little else).
It’s interesting that the adults seem like they’re all either suffering from, or on the verge of having, a genuine mid-life crisis. Their inability to be good role models to their offspring plays a part in why the four girls have grown up so fast. It’s all very chaotic, but often in a good way.
